Milk and Honey is a New York Times Bestseller authored by Rupi Kaur and published in 2015. This poetry book is split into four different sections: the hurting, the loving, the breaking, and the healing. Each section follows the theme of its title closely. The hurting describes an unhealthy relationship with family, lovers, and self. The loving starts the author’s journey back into affection and relationships, unhealthy and healthy. The breaking describes the author’s coming-to-terms with the unhealthy relationship that she is in. Finally, the healing reveals the author’s ability to overcome her situation and fall in love with herself. Overall, I found this book to be empowering, beautiful, and a must-read for any person who has gone or is going through a hard time.
